Apocalypse is a Great Coasters International wooden roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, USA. The ride was previously named "Terminator Salvation: The Ride" from 2009 and 2010 and was themed after the newest sequel in the Terminator movie series.
Terminator Salvation: The Ride opened on May 23, 2009. It was built in the spot formerly occupied by Psyclone. Apocalypse was the first wooden coaster to have on-board speakers, but the speakers later stopped working properly and were removed when the ride was rethemed in 2011. The ride also has three misty tunnels, one of which passes through the station, and a fire special effect.
In March 2017, the rougher sections of the ride were retracked by British company Wood Coaster Developments.
Nearly all of Apocalypse was retracked by GCI while it was closed in 2019 due to construction of nearby West Coast Racers. In addition, the ride received a theming update, changing the theme from nuclear fallout to a plague wiping out humanity.
